Give us an update! How many weeks are you? Any news to report from last week? What are you looking forward to this week? Any appointments coming up?

Did we have any deliveries last week?

I was thrilled to see Leony return to the Forum a few days ago to let us know her daughter is doing great! Leony delivered at 30 weeks, and we hadn't heard from her since then (about 4 months ago), so it was so reassuring and inspiring to hear from her again. You can do it too!

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call! July 5th
« on: July 05, 2010 at 08:07 AM »
You've made it into July, ladies! So who is still cookin'? How many weeks? Any deliveries last week?

And let us know what you are looking forward to this week: Appointments? Visits from friends? A certain book, movie or TV show?

Think positive. Be proactive. Stay pregnant. :)

I'll start.

My nose was broken by a cantaloupe. I was helping to unload a truck of cantaloupes at the farmers market where I worked the summer before college.

Tell us something random about you!

So I'm posting this on Sunday night because I'm excited to hear how everyone is doing! So tell us what you are looking forward to this week, how many weeks you are, and what your favorite bedrest food is.

I ate a lot of dried cherries when I was on bedrest, and also drinkable yogurts that I kept in a small fridge next to my futon on the floor in the living room. I wanted to be where all the action was with my then 2-year-old Miss Sunshine. Every day was a party on the floor! Kids are so adaptable!

Looking forward to your updates!

So who is still cookin' and who has delivered? I know we have at least one delivery of a 9.5-ponder, and there are a few of you who haven't posted in the last week or two. Once you settle in a little bit, let us know how you are!

And, for everyone, tell us what you are looking forward to this week!

Keep 'Em Cookin' mamas!

Making the Best of Bed Rest / Monday Roll Call! June 14
« on: June 14, 2010 at 06:59 AM »
Good morning, ladies!

I spent the entire day yesterday at the American College of Nurse-Midwives annual meeting and I feel SO optimistic for the future of preterm birth prevention. Over the coming months I'll have new developments to share related to product development, genetic testing, and online activities for bedrest moms.

So what are YOU optimistic about this week? What has been going right? And as always, let us know many weeks you are and if you have any appointments this week.

I'm really looking forward to your updates today!

How many weeks are you? Any OB appointments this week? What are you looking forward to this week?

It has been very exciting to see so many to members join the Forum over the past week! You all are doing the most important job in the world and you deserve all the support you can get!

All members, please get us up to date! How many weeks are you? Any doctor's appointments planned this week? Also, what are you looking forward to this week?

Can I get everyone to commit to reaching out to a friend this week? Invite a friend to come visit you, and maybe bring a meal from a favorite restaurant or bring you a snack food you've been craving. Or, call an old friend for a long chat. Is there a board game you haven't played since you were a kid? Play it. Staying connected to other people helps SO much!

A big welcome to the many new forum members who have joined us over the past few days! We're looking forward to getting to know you!

And to ALL the ladies, let us know how many weeks you are, if you have any OB appointments this week, and what you are looking forward to. A certain book, or TV show, a special meal or a visit from a friend?

I know this week we should have some mamas checking in who are at the 37 week mark and beyond. I love to see the success stories!

Keep 'em cookin' mamas!

When I was pregnant with Little Guy, I kept this list of preterm labor symptoms on my fridge. It helped me to see things in black and white, rather than to ignore what I was feeling.

* Four or more contractions in one hour either with or without pain; cramping that may feel like menstrual cramps
* Vaginal or rectal pressure; a feeling like the baby could just “fall out”
* Increased discharge; loss of the mucus plug
* Lower backache that may persist, or come and go
* Bleeding of any sort or amount
* Leaking fluid; a gush of fluid
* Increased bowel movements or diarrhea
* A decrease in the baby's activity; fewer kicks
* A sense that something just isn't right

Please share this link with anyone you know who is pregnant to help them learn about the symptoms of preterm labor:

Thanks!
